The Spirit of Gin by Matt Teacher

Sold Out

In 'The Spirit of Gin' author Matt Teacher shares his unique American perspective on Gin, with a large proportion of American gin brands explored along with extensive sections on Prohibition. The book also covers a short history of gin, the art and craft of distillation, historic gin cocktails, popular gin bars and the wider topics surrounding gin including tonic, syrup, bitters, garnishes, bartender toolkits and a catalogue of gin distillers.

The Spirit of Gin goes further than just recounting history and mere descriptions, it includes instructions on how to discover more information off the book's pages. Given most books on the subject of Gin have been UK centric or based on the spirit’s history (be it in London or beforehand in Europe), the sharp focus on the modern gin revival and innovative American craft-gin distillers makes Teacher’s book both unique and worth seeking out.

Furthermore, the design of this gin book makes it fit for even the most discerning of coffee book collectors. With carefully designed pages that depict everything from the cultural and historical to advertising and branding, it is a feast for the eyes.

The Spirit of Gin is an entertaining and highly enjoyable summary of both Gin and gin based cocktails and with its intricate design and illustrations makes for a fantastic gift for gin lovers.
